Drone/UAV Video and Photography Services in Dorset and the UK
YOUR PROPERTY, WEDDING, GOLF COURSE, TOWN, CITY OR BUSINESS FROM THE AIR!
CAA qualified, licensed and insured drone pilot shooting aerial video in Dorset and the UK. Up to 4K RAW video with high resolution photography from the air for your business portfolio or promotion.
As part of my ongoing commitment to providing a unique, professional and efficient service in Weymouth, Dorset, Southern England and the rest of Britain, since 2015 I have been offering full 4K aerial video and photography services in the UK.
This required a large amount of time, investment and official hoops that needed to be jumped through. The procedures included attending and completing the courses and exams set by the CAA which are a requirement for legally flying the drones commercially.
For more than 3 years now, I have been a qualified BNUC-s pilot with full insurance (including £5 million public and property indemnity). I have all the relevant licenses in place from the Civil Aviation Authority to shoot commercially.

Drones and the UK Laws
We use high tech drones (UAV's or “unmanned Aerial Vehicles) with up to 4K RAW/1080p high definition cameras. These shoot with varying frame rates and are able to fly these anywhere in the UK whilst abiding by the following restrictions set out by the CAA.
The reason we use UAV’s (drone’s) and not a full scale helicopter or plane is simply the cost. The more we can save on the outlay, the more you save on our services. The footage remains the same high quality either way. In fact, the footage from a UAV can be way more dramatic and exciting! I am able to manoeuvre it into so many more different and unique perspectives.

Other Relevant Information
Obviously filming aerial video takes a certain amount of skill, training and experience. Prior to any commercial contracts being undertaken, a full scale safety brief and flight check is necessary in order to abide by the CAA regulations covering things such as:
Plus a log of each flight will also be documented which will include all of the above.
We work all of the south coast of England…Weymouth and Dorset (and beyond) including Exeter, Devon, Salisbury, Bristol, Bath, Poole, Bournemouth, Southampton, Brighton, Kent and pretty much the whole of the UK.
We are happy to travel anywhere in the UK or Europe but we're based around and closest to: Dorset, Devon, Hampshire, Somerset, Sussex, Kent and London.
Prices for work vary depending on the location and UAV used and start from £250 for two hours (including travel). All prices below include the completion of all relevant paperwork such as pre-site and on-site surveys, risk assessments, aviation traffic checks and so on. They also include all images and video clips with rights to edit, publish and use anywhere.
If you use a NON-licensed, NON-qualified pilot for commercial work and something goes wrong (and the blades of a UAV can do serious bodily harm), both you and the pilot could be liable for damages. Please ensure that you do your homework on any pilots you are thinking of hiring.
The majority of the work we do requires just one operator. In order to keep costs down, a member of your staff can act as "spotter". This is simply to look out for low flying aircraft, birds or general public that tend to flock towards the drone at times. We use two pilots for more complicated work where one pilot will fly and the other will operate the camera. We can also have two pilots flying at the same time if required.
